The Ripple Effect at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

One ripple can change lives everywhere

Honor a family member, friend, or caregiver with a personalized tribute while advancing groundbreaking cancer research and patient care.



What we do here changes lives everywhere. The Ripple Effect is a representation of how your support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund impacts the lives of current and future patients all over the world.

Your generosity creates a ripple effect that spreads far and wide. From an idea in our research laboratories that sparks the next life-saving treatment, to a clinical trial that ends up changing standards of care around the world, to grassroots fundraising that inspires and engages the donor community. You are part of ever-expanding change and hope.

Located at both our Chestnut Hill and Foxborough locations, these eye-catching displays allow you to carry on the ripple effect with your own personalized ring of hope. Show your support for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's mission by naming a ring with a personal message or in honor of a family member, friend, or caregiver.

Rings are available in three sizes with a gift of $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000 and can be named individually or as a group. See how you can inscribe your ring using the preview feature below.
